Pop Plug

Have you ever seen that game online that shows you a bunch of pictures of toys and you need to choose whether they are baby toys or sex toys?  No? Well, it’s pretty awesome, because sometimes it’s easy to tell which is which, and sometimes it’s not only damn near impossible to figure it out – I actually get them wrong!  Why do I bring this up?  Because this week’s reviewed toy, the Pop Plug, is the most toy-like sex toy I’ve ever seen.

Hot pink and shaped kind of like an over-sized pacifier, this silicone butt plug comes in three different sizes (small – 1”x 1 4/5”, medium – 1 ¼”x2 ½”, large – 1 ½”x 2 ½”).  While they may be a little wide for some beginners, I’d say that all of these plugs are great for just starting to play with the butt.  Their teardrop shape allows the narrow tip to easily slide into your asshole and then gradually get bigger and bulbous before returning to the narrowness of the neck that keeps it help securely in place.  These plugs even have a ring molded into the silicone to make pulling it out as easy as possible.  The ring is pretty much what makes me automatically think of pacifiers and rattles.  What can I say, I’ve been working around dirty stuff so long that my mind has made it full circle back to being completely clean.

Unlike some sex toys, the Pop Plugs are most definitely non-threatening.  If you are looking for a butt plug to introduce to a partner that may be anxious the booty, this would be a great option to offer up.   And being silicone, this toy is 100% body safe and super easy to clean and sterilize.  The satiny silicone makes the Pop Plug go in nice smoothly as well.

While both my partner and I are a little more advanced with the booty play, we still appreciated having a simple, easy-to-use toy.  We got a medium plug to test out, which was a little on the small side, so we used it to warm up with before moving on to a bigger plug.  The Pop Plug was a great opening act and stayed firmly in place as we worked ourselves into a more excited frenzy.  Plus the ring made it super easy to pop out as we moved on to a bigger toy.  All-in-all, the Pop Plug an awesome toy for those just starting out, more advanced anal adventurers, and everyone in between.

The Tristan – A Signature Butt Plug!

Oh Tristan Taormino, just when we think we couldn’t love you any more than we already do, you go and make a signature butt plug!  That’s right – the fantastic butt toy we are reviewing today is not only named after anal sex queen Tristan Taormino, it was actually designed with her expert input!

For those of you who may not know the genius of Tristan Taormino, let me pause for a second and give a little schooling.  Tristan is an author, educator, columnist, porn director and all around expert in all things anal.  This lady is downright amazing!  And awesome for us, silicone toy maker Vixen Creations teamed up with Taormino to create the ultimate anal plug – The Tristan!

The initial partnership happened a little while ago (not sure when), and now there is a second, larger Tristan, but we were lucky enough to get our pervy little paws on the original Tristan (which is now called the Tristan 1).  Measuring in at 3” long, with a 1 ½” diameter of the head and a 1”+ neck diameter, this plug is the perfect size for both beginners and folks with a little bit of booty play experience.  When it comes to advanced anal, I’d go with the Tristan 2 or something a little bit larger.

There were a few reasons we really wanted to review this specific butt plug.  We clearly knew that anything with Tristan’s stamp of approval had to be one hell of an anal adventure!  A big reason we were interested was that the specific shape of the Tristan offers up some unique features – the long neck of this plug really helps it stay securely in your ass and the rectangular base with the concave cutouts rests comfortably between your cheeks.

I was looking for a plug that could easily be worn while walking around and doing unrelated tasks, and Tristan definitely fit the bill!  With other shaped plugs, it seems like they fall out of the anus easily and even the gravity of the base can pull it out quickly.  The Tristan’s longer neck allows the sphincter muscles to hold on tight and keep the plug feeling snug – which means you can take it out of the house without worrying about it falling out!  Ask us how we know 😉 Continue reading The Tristan – A Signature Butt Plug!

Little Flirt

Oh, the art of flirting. From that first coy glance to the flat out proclamation of attraction – there is nothing quite like the giddiness and excitement of a new, sexy beginning. So, it makes perfect sense why Tantus would name their deliciously minute butt plug Little Flirt. Teasing the sensitive sphincter muscles with its thin, graduated neck, the Little Flirt is a fabulous butt plug for beginners and pros alike, showing everyone that anal sex can be totally hot and enjoyable from the very start.

Little FlirtWhile I am no longer an anal amateur, I requested the Little Flirt butt plug to replace a Flirt that was lost during my many moves throughout the years. As sad as it was to lose such a dear toy, I wasn’t too torn up, since I did get an updated version of the Little Flirt! And let me tell you – those few new changes have totally made the difference!

The new and improved Little Flirt features a longer neck, which helps keep it securely inside your rectum, as well as special cut outs on the sides of the flared base that are perfectly shaped to help this little guy stay nestled between your cheeks and right where it needs to be. Little Flirt is also a great plug to wear around for a long time without feeling too full or like there is something gigantic in your rear.

And we can’t forget that this little guy is made of 100% silicone, which means it’s super easy to clean and sterilize (boil, bleach solution or dishwasher!), as well as totally body safe. Just be sure to lay off the silicone lube – we don’t want any melting butt plugs!

Even as an experienced bottom, I still really like to go back to the Little Flirt when it comes to getting prepared for action and working up to some of my bigger backdoor buddies. And for my not-so-anally-savvy dates, beginners luck is a given when you add a bit of passion, a dollop of lube and, or course, a Little Flirt!

Sidekick Silicone Anal Plug

Speaking purely as a beginner- the Sidekick Silicone Anal Plug is it! I have only used one other anal toy and it left me feeling not so excited to try anything new or different, but thankfully part of my job is to experiment, so here I am with an anal toy in my hands.

This review is directed to anyone who is nervous and/or curious about anal play. For those of you who have had a multitude of toys in your ass, this may come across as boring.

As shown in the picture, this toy us made of two bulbous shapes – a long one and a small one at the top.  The indentation at the base works to keep the plug inside once you’ve completed the full insertion. With proper lubrication (only use water-based, not silicone lube), the small bulb slides in without too much force. It feels strange to have something entering instead of exiting, so give yourself a minute to relax and realize there is no pain, just a new sensation. Continue reading Sidekick Silicone Anal Plug


A deliciously curved, two tiered silicone butt plug, the Warhol totally lives up to its name – it’s a work of art. Elegant enough for the mantle, but way more fun when functional, this beginner sized (read: smallish) booty toy utilizes that signature ‘come-hither’ crooked finger shape associated with G/P-spot stimulation to up the pleasure ante. Just insert with the curve facing toward the front of your body and apply a little light pressure to get the party started for whatever ‘spot’ you have! That’s right, the G-spot is accessible through the ass too! Of course don’t forget the lube (not silicone lube though – it will melt your toy!).

Lots of anal playthings are great, but when it comes to amazing butt toys, the real delight is in the details – and let’s just say this plug passed with flying colors (and mind-blowing orgasms). While many butt plug bases are round, Warhol’s is shaped to snuggle perfectly between the cheeks and keep itself firmly in place. And don’t forget to take a quick peek at the base, where there is a nice little reservoir molded to hold a bullet vibe. Since silicone transfers vibrations like a champ, this is a seriously awesome addition. I suggest adding a few drops of lube to the bullet before inserting it into the hole so it comes out super easily for cleanup.

And cleanup couldn’t be easier – just pull out the vibe and drop the plug in a pot of boiling water (3-5 mins) or run it through the dishwasher on the top shelf with no soap, or even just wipe it down with a bleach solution (10% bleach to 90% water). Totally disinfected and clean as a whistle in minutes.

While Andy Warhol was known for expecting only 15 minutes of fame, this Warhol will bring you a lifetime of enjoyment.

What NOT To Stick Up Your Butt

After reading this handy dandy little article on the Frisky, I decided it was time for a little HM4H public service announcement: Please don’t stick hammerheads up your butt.

Actually, there are a lot of items you shouldn’t be sticking where the sun doesn’t shine (in spite of the popularity of the expression.) Cups and broom handles are pretty popular on the Rectal Foreign Bodies list, but bottles are the most common foreign body removed – from the body. So please remember, be safe and chose a quality toy designed to not get stuck up there, like the Ophoria Rapture or a nice Rook E Glass Crystal Butt Plug (a toy with a flared base.) Even with a toy designed for anal play always remember to be safe, consensual and careful.

Starting At The Bottom: An Intro to Anal Play, Part 2

Earlier this month I ran a workshop on anal play for a local toy shop.  Since the class turned out so great and people had so many great questions, I decided to share my handout with our HM4Her readers to make sure that you guys are getting the best of the best when it comes to sex education.  There was so much info that I had to break it into two parts (check out Intro to Anal Play, Part 1)! What what in the butt, let’s get to it!

In the first section I covered all the basics of why people have anal sex, the fears surrounding anal play, the expectations involved with anal sex and all of the basic anatomy of the butt.  Now we get to talk about safety, prep, techniques and toys – all the super sexy good stuff!


Safety Basics

Anal sex should not hurt. If it hurts, you are doing something wrong.

– Lube, Lube Lube, Lube, Lube! When it comes to butts, you can never use enough lube! Your ass does not self lubricate (like a vagina) so lube is super, extra important. For anal sex, thicker lubes are great. Your best bet is either silicone or water-based lube (as oil-based lubes can weaken condoms, if you are using them), but remember that you cannot use silicone lube with silicone toys. Also remember to add more lube frequently. If you think you’re using too much lube, add some more. Continue reading Starting At The Bottom: An Intro to Anal Play, Part 2

Rook E Glass Crystal Butt Plug

Putting glass up your ass is generally considered a no-no. Aside from being extremely dangerous and harmful to all your delicate tissues, I can imagine it would hurt like a bitch. But think about all the benefits of glass… it can be so silky smooth, take temperature change like a champ and be really heavy when you want it to be. Sigh, that sounds so fun. Good thing some scientist somewhere decided to make a fracture-resistant glass that later allowed an awesome pervert to fashion it into the ultimate glass butt plug!

That’s the Rook E Glass Crystal Butt Plug for you! Science’s gift to the anal connoisseur. What sets this plug apart from others is definitely its material. While I love, love, love silicone toys, glass provides a few extra benefits that silicone just can’t offer. First off, glass is super smooth and only takes the smallest drop of lube to get it nice and slippery (though I suggest using more than just a drop when you are hitting the back door), and it offers little to no friction resistance as it slides into your body. Glass also takes temperature change extremely well and the Rook E can be cooled down and chilly or heated up to a perfect body temperature using warm and ice cold water. So easy. Also, with silicone toys you get a little give, which the Rook E does not allow. The solid glass keeps rigid and feels more filling than a silicone plug of the exact same size. And speaking of size…

Two of my favorite aspects of this big guy are its weight and size. Measuring in at 4½ inches long and 1½ inches at its widest point, I might not say the Rook E is for rookies exactly, but if you are an experienced anal adventurer, this plug should work out just fine. Plus it starts out small and gets bigger, so it’s a fun toy to test out girth with. While I’m not quite sure how much it weighs (I’d guess about the same as a lighter paperweight?), this glass crystal toy is no feather. The weight is what makes it so fun. Though it’s not usually easy to forget you have something in your ass, with this toy you will most definitely know it’s back there at all times. Heavy, big and rigid – the perfect plug trifecta. Hold on a sec while I fan myself…

 I also really like that Rook E is clear glass. Not everybody wants to be able to see a bit into someone’s open butthole, but I like the idea that the option is there. Hey, I write for a porn company – I’m a known pervert and sex educator, and I’m not ashamed to want to get a better look into a bottom! You shouldn’t be either. Butts are the best and should be enjoyed just like every other part of the body!

When it comes to butt plugs, the Rook E is a great flared based toy that stays where it’s put, fills you up and will last a lifetime. Two thumbs up for my new best butty!

Pfun Plug

From the first time I held a njoy toy in my hand, I knew I was sold. One hundred percent medical grade stainless steel in all shapes, sizes and weights – even writing it is enough to give me a tingle in my bottom. My first njoy was the Pure Wand, a pure slice of heaven weighing in at 24 ounces of pleasure. That G-spot hitting barbell of delight began my need for metal between my legs, and I don’t mean a motorcycle.

Knowing that my vag would be pretty occupied with the wand, I decided to try out a toy that would work well in my other bottom half hole. That’s right, my butt. That underutilized ring of sensitive nerves and deliciously moan-worthy sensations. Knowing that I enjoyed anal sex with partners in the past, but never really exploring my butt solo, I thought that any company that could come up with such a magic wand would be perfect to tap into my masturbation virginal butthole.
